Recently released is Steve Martin’s book, “An Object of Beauty.” This isn’t a blogger’s book review, as this author is yet to read his latest. This post is more like a review of Mr. Martin’s interviews in the press surrounding his book release – needless to say, as a collection, very entertaining. Steve is an entertainer, but what is wonderful about this series of interviews, is what we are able to learn about the art world. They all take us down a quick art history lesson.

The first segment shown is with Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report. Steve Martin takes a quick art quiz.
